Relief Pitcher Specialization:

Permanently turn a pitcher into a relief pitcher by spending PP's.

What it Costs:
1) A GM will spend 20 PP to use this reward, and can only use this reward on one player per season.

Who is Eligible:
1) Any starting pitcher who currently has three or more pitches, and an Endurance of 5 or higher.
2) This player must not have had any specialization previously in his career.

How it Works:
1) Endurance on the internal 1-250 scale will be divided by three, and rounded DOWN to create the pitchers new Endurance rating.
2) The two highest rated pitches will be the only ones that remain, however, if pitcher has a rated fastball that pitch will remain regardless of whether or not it is one of the two highest rated pitches.
3) Add together the totals (on the internal 1-250 scale) of the pitches that will be dropped. Divide the total by three (round down). The remaining result will be divided by three (round down). That number will be added to each remaining pitch, and velocity will be bumped by two levels.

Example:
1) "Joe Hurler" is a current SP.
2) His current ratings are: 11 EN, 12 FB, 14 CB, 16 SI, 90-92 Velocity.
3) His team chooses to use the "Relief Pitcher Specialization" Reward to permanently turn him into a relief pitcher.
4) Endurance on the internal 1-250 scale is divided by three, and rounded down to the closest round number to create the new Endurance rating.
5) Two highest rated pitchers are Sinker and Curveball, but since he has a Fastball he must keep that. So he will keep Sinker and Fastball. Curveball gets dropped.
6) Curveball rating on the internal 1-250 scale is divided by three, then divided by three again, and rounded down to the closest round number.
7) The resulting round number is added to the two pitches that remain on the internal 1-250 scale.
8) Velocity is bumped by two levels (becomes 92-94).

As the math doesn't always translate exactly from what I need to do on the internal 1-250 scale to the 1-10/1-20 scales, I've edited the top post to more accurately reflect what I do to make these adjustments.

For you new(er) guys, I've taken advantage of this twice. To me it's the most valuable PP reward available without question (far more valuable than SP conversion). Why? Well, that would give away some secrets. Let's just say the key is in the math and then looking for a certain profile of the kind of pitcher this would benefit. It's not going to turn a solid reliever into a superstar, but if it's used correctly it can turn a borderline, stuck-in-long-relief-because-he's-average-but-is-out-of-minor-league-options guy into a positive piece of your bullpen.

Question. I see it says the pitcher has to have at least 5 endurance, and in the example you guys were clearly using the 1-20 scale for those secondary ratings (endurance, pitches, etc). So is that 5 on the 1-10 scale, or 5 on the 1-20 scale?
